    Woolfson seems to have gotten screwed over when they named the band.
    They never performed live.
    They never had a Top 40 single in their native Britain.
    When their contract renegotiations with Arista Records stalled, they submitted an album of atonal instrumentals called 'The Sicilian Defense' to the label; Arista rejected the album and Parsons has said that The Sicilian Defense 'was never released and never will be, if I have anything to do with it... I hope the tapes no longer exist.'
    Despite featuring a variety of guest vocalists, their albums had a consistent signature sound.
    The CD reissue of 'Tales of Mystery and Imagination' featured narration by Orson Welles that had been recorded for the original album but arrived too late for inclusion.
    They had three platinum and three gold albums in the US.
    Their instrumental 'Sirius' has been used as entrance music for several sports teams, including the Chicago Bulls, Detroit Lions and the football teams of the University of Nebraska, Iowa State and Kansas State.
